Stupid Woolliam Tricks

We have to separate everyone at feeding time so no one gets too much or too little to eat or the wrong type of food or gets bullied, etc. Woolliam has figured out how to open his gate when he's finished. Now this might seem really simple, but in reality it's fairly impressive. An animal's natural instinct is to push things, not pull them towards themselves.




Now, I like the first clip because you can see how Petunia takes advantage of big brother Woolliam (why learn to do it yourself, eh?), but I don't like the extra couple of seconds at the end and Woolliam doesn't look as slick getting through the gate himself. So, for a few extra cookies, he'll willingly go back in and do it over. And over. And over. Quite the professional movie star.

Impressive! I need to post a video of Finley playing "snoot" (a game Rick devised) and getting "scritched" for your enjoyment. Silly sheepies!
